Tap at the brewery. Pours black with a slightly thin body. Coffee, chocolate malt and roasted grain all pop out in the aroma. Taste is smooth and dry, with the coffee and chocolate balanced really well. Well done brew.

Draught at Bye and Bye, just listed as "porter". Fully black color with a creamy head of light tan. The aroma is pretty mild and consists mostly of creamy roasted malt. The flavor is dry and has plenty of smooth roasted malt, a hint of chocolate, and mellow hops. Neither very bitter nor sweet and goes down very easily. Medium bodied with smooth, medium carbonation. Dark chocolate smoothness for the most part, almost like a dry stout with lower bitterness from both hops and roast. A little plain, but a fine porter.

Pint @ Brouwer’s. A lot of flavor and aroma packed in for a porter. Smells delicious with dark chocolate and roasted coffee notes. Tastes a little funny at the end. Definitely would like to try some more Amnesia brews.
